My ArtVenture: Watercolor painting „An Yang Ru pavilion“

in steempress •  last month

Hello dear Steemians,



Today I wanted to present my recent Watercolor painting that once again I have taken as a reference photo the beautiful An Yang Ru pavilion, that I saw in one of @slowwalker’s post, bellow I will give the link to the post too.

I would like to thank @slowwalker for sharing such historical places in Autumn colors, that inspired me to create my work.

The reason why, first of all, this is interesting wooden construction, double storey. I love everything made of solid wood and this construction also really old. I can‘t stop be impressed with the craft skills of ancient people, their love to beauty and their will to give something to future generation.

When I saw that pavilion I became a bit jealous as I would be love to have such pavilion too where you could sit up so high and look at the horizon, enjoy spectacular view and just have a cup of good coffee or tea, of course with cake :)

Also I did not use watercolor for some time and decided to refresh my skills, from my painting I love most those three little bushes on right, that was real fun to do them and I am very satisfied with the result.


My step-by-step process:








The finished painting

Thank you Ian, it is nice to hear your opinion :)

Lovely colors! I really like architecture style art. The only thing for me it takes long time and patience to measure everything in right proportions.

I loved it, it´s so fresh your art

Great Post

Really beautiful painting. You give the stages when painting. We know that your work starts from the beginning and is documented. Then when we see the sketch first I feel like I will look alive. Then when I see the final results and photos that become inspirational, I can only say WOW ... great
Thank you @slowwalker

Thank you, I love watercolor but it is a difficult medium so I do not use it often, but I want to improve myself :)

I very like details! Beautiful painting:)

Old Venice fand ich auch mega!
